VeChain is close to completing one of its most symbolic milestones – launching their own main net dubbed VeChain Thor. Apart from launching their own main net, VeChain foundation will have a token swap between the current asset VEN and the future token VET, which would be the native token of the new VeChain Thor network.

VeChain Thor is only Days Away

VeChain Thor is only several days ahead and in that spirit, the VEN community seems to be pretty ecstatic, while the public is waiting for the main net to be finally launched into the public, the team behind VeChain foundation is working on final preparations for the main net launch and the live version of VeChain Thor.

During the final preparations, among which beta testing of the upcoming network took place, the team behind VEN has also gone forward with announcing several partnerships that will come as integral for the future development of the upcoming main net Thor.

VeChain foundation has also published an official timeline to help the community follow up with the launching of the new main net, and in accordance with the published timeline, VeChain Thor should get to see the first public user on June 30th, that way entering July as well as a brand new stage for VEN, soon to become VET token.

The main net is said to be officially initiated with authority Masternode deployment for the live net, followed by the generation of genesis block, which would at the same time mark the birthday of VeChain Thor. On the same day, a snapshot will be taken on Ethereum with X-Node monitoring pauses.

The team has also added on the published timeline that the new wallet for VeChain Thor should come out on July 9th, while X-Node Binding service should become available on the same day.

Somewhere in mid-July, the token swap should be concluded with VET tokens ready for trading on exchanges where available. The exact time for when the live trading of VET tokens will begin is yet to be arranged with the exchange platforms that support VeChain trading and transactions.

It is expected that the exchanges will complete the process of token swapping by the end of July, which means that once exchanges are done with their part, VeChain Foundation will be providing token swap services to their users.

August 1st is marked on the provided timeline as the day when X-Node status monitoring is ought to resume, however, the team stresses out that the initial day for the mentioned resume can easily change as it all depends on how successful the token swap turns out to be.

Concluding the timeline of the VeChain Thor main net launch, Ledger integration with VET is scheduled somewhere in August while the exact date is yet to be determined based on the overall progress of the milestone completion as described in the timeline.

For now, everything seems to be on schedule, so the VEN community can expect to see VeChain Thor launched in several days from now, on June 30th.

In addition to the main net launch and the token swap from VEN to VET, all holders with a minimum of 10,000 VEN can become eligible for VET Strength Masternode while holding the given number of tokens in the time of the snapshot.

What Changes is VeChain Foundation Expecting with Thor Main Net?

Thor Main Net is said to be more scalable and more stable in oppose to the current chain that VEN uses. In oppose to the current chain used for transacting and operating with VEN currency, the new chain, Blockchain X, should provide an increased level of scalability.

This is the fact because the team is planning to have a vast number of smart contracts being operated with on the upcoming VeChain Thor main net, which is why the network is designed to be able to acquire a certain level of stability in the market for the future VET tokens as well.

VeChain Thor will act as Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS), working in many ways as a supply chain. However, the Thor main net is said to have the main goal of becoming one of the largest platforms for deploying decentralized applications.

In order to diminish the need for trust between two different parties when it comes to supply chain industry, VeChain Thor will be providing that trust factor in order to provide the needed technology for tracking down goods.

VEN will be consequently transformed into VET in the upcoming ending stage of the token swap, and on the Thor network, VET tokens will be used for powering up business ventures where the advantage on the network will be given to business owners using VET tokens.

Just like NEO, one of the well-known smart contract platforms produces GAS tokens, that is how the new VeChain Thor main net will be producing THOR that VET holders will be given for running applications on the platform and operate with smart contracts.

The network should consequently become one of the largest ecosystems for decentralized applications, alongside with providing a more stable rate of growth for VET tokens in the market.

VeChain (VEN) Performance

Only a couple of days away from the launching of VeChain Thor main net, VEN is down by -2.94% against the dollar due to the latest change in the market where the majority of crypto assets are down in the red once again after barely two days of rising up and trading in the green.

After the recent change in its price, VEN can be traded at the price of 2.62$.

It has been around a month and a half since the start of 2019, and there are already some pretty obvious changes in the way the crypto market operates, especially when compared to the last year. Early 2018 was almost a complete opposite. The previous year started with cryptocurrencies at their strongest, only to see them crashing down after a few weeks. Back then, the ICO model was still quite strong, and so was the hype surrounding the crypto space. New investors kept entering the space, and new startups emerged with their tokens ready to be sold.

As the year progressed, things started to change. The prices continued to drop, the ICO model went down from around $1.4 billion in raised funds at the beginning of the year to only $100 million in the last month.

The ICO model lost investors’ trust, as many of the projects turned out to be either too weak to survive after the crypto winter struck, or scams which tricked investors out of their money and disappeared. Not to mention that the increase in ICOs popularity attracted the regulators who cracked down on them pretty hard, especially in the US.

With all of that happening, it is of a small surprise that the investors started giving up on ICOs, especially with the constant drops in prices which saw even the largest coins…

Cryptocurrencies – a term which has become incredibly prominent in the mainstream media during recent years due to the proliferation of Bitcoin millionaires. As a result, the new form of currency has earned an almost infamous status. However, as with any major step forward, there is still much confusion regarding the use of cryptocurrencies, what different types of innovative electronic cash exist and what they might mean for the future.

We’re putting all of this to rest as we explain what each of the leading cryptocurrencies can do.

Bitcoin

The most popular form of cryptocurrency, Bitcoin was first thought up in 2008 by the elusive and still unknown creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, who published the whitepaper online.

It took almost a decade for the cryptocurrency to reach its peak, but in December 2017 a single Bitcoin roughly exchanged for the price of $17,000, meaning anyone who held a substantial amount of the electronic cash became significantly wealthy.

In its early years, the cryptocurrency was strictly used as an alternative for cash transactions, and predominantly for trading goods and services. However as it has increased in popularity, its range of uses has also widened, now deployed for a variety of purposes including acting as collateral for investments at merchant banks, a direct debit for subscriptions services and most notably for sports betting.

New DoJ Ruling May Cripple Gambling dApps

A new decision made by the US Justice Department has expanded restrictions regarding online gambling in the US affecting gambling dApps. While the Federal Wire Act of 1961 prohibited online gambling regarding sports since 2011, the new decision expanded on this, and it now includes all forms of internet gambling. Unfortunately for many, this now also includes cryptocurrencies.

The new decision came due to considerable difficulties when it comes to guaranteeing that only interstate betting will take place and that payments will not be routed via different states.

The new announcement was explained in a 23-page-long opinion issued by the Department of Justice’s legal team, which pointed out that the 2011 decision misinterpreted the law. According to that decision, transferring funds was to be considered a violation, but data transfers were not included. By exploiting this oversight, it was possible for gamblers to turn to internet gambling. Unsurprisingly, many have realized this early on, including startups, as well as large, established firms. This, of course, also included cryptocurrency companies as well.
